New Orleans Pelicans Betting
The New Orleans Pelicans had a lot of upside heading to the season having a healthy Zion Williamson in their roster. This team has been in the discussions as one of the most disappointing teams in the league and trade talks for Lonzo Ball and J.J. Redick has been the subject for rumors. Brandon Ingram has been trying his best to keep this team afloat but fans have been clamoring for Williamson to take more minutes. Steven Adams continues to man the paint and has been the most consistent player for them so far but Eric Bledsoe is quite the opposite.
